This IT services company describes itself as “the world’s energy meter”. AMEE gathers energy consumption and emissions data then provides a technology platform for others to use that data. Its platform is open to developers who want to build applications on top of it, enterprises that want to track their own performance, or academics who want to distribute research findings.
The Greenbang Barometer
AMEE is a seriously interesting proposition. DEFRA (the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) is already supplying data and the government’s own “Act on CO2” calculator runs on the AMEE platform.
The company has done its research – 150 countries are represented – so it’s a comprehensive offering.
Greenbang also gives AMEE the thumbs-up for its open source stance – its code is open for others to use, and it encourages customers to release their data under Creative Commons so it can be shared – and the company makes its service free to certain noncommercial projects.
AMEE already has the likes of Google among its users – what more do you need to know?
